ok, funny you should ask, I added headless support to mac carbon
3.8.13b4U a week back and was looking for beta testers.
I've stuck in on the idisk and ftp server in the experimental folder.
I'll note there is one bug, because of the copyloop change I've been
hacking on it does not copy forms correctly when you drag widgets
about, you get
the form's lower/right pixel rendered incorrecctly.
However as headless and not serving Forms this might not be a problem
Later in the week or next week I'll posdt a 3.8.13b5U to fix that
For now look in the usual places via
in the experimental folder.
3.8.13.b4 Headless support
headless, set background to false if not headless.
alter uuid returned to signify which VM this is
swap buttons to ensure cmd/opt of trackpad is right
Add LSBackgroundOnly to yes i
headless parm -headless added
3.8.13.b4, b5, b6, b7
Had limited distribution to test new button modification logic
bitBlt>copyLoop changes, normally it prefetchs the next byte for
barrel shifting 64 bits when copying from
one form to another, and a dirty secret and old bug is that it
reads one word past the end of the Form
when it processes the last word in the Form. However when you use
surfaces where the surface is
allocated elsewhere not in object space and in fact say the
allocated form is 2MB and the vm memory
system makes the frame past the 2MB range non-readable, why then
you die on a read protection failure.
So alter the loop to consider if it's preload and the last line we
don't do the pre-fetch because that could
cause a read failure.
Exupery support, via plugin and changes in the VM for Mac Intel,
use merged VMMaker-Exupery change set
